The successful applicant for a PhD Scholarship must have demonstrated a research potential as reflected e.g. by the grades obtained.

Institutional knowledge concerning the Danish hospital sector is not a requirement from the outset, but is considered a prerequisite for a successful project.

The research project ‘The Hospital of the Future’ has a firm foundation within the area of the Social Sciences, but the development and testing of models reaches well into the clinical world. Thus, successful applicants are expected to have an educational background in economics or business economics - e.g. cand.oecon., cand.scient.oecon., or cand.merc. - applicants with a related educational background may however come into consideration as well. The application must include a synopsis describing a set of ideas related to one or more of the three pillars for the overall project to be addressed as part of the scholarship along with the methods to be used for doing this. The proposal may be further specified during the first three months of the position.

The PhD Scholarship can either be accomplished in terms of the so-called 5+3 model or the 4+4 model. Scholarships according to the 5+3 model can be given to applicants with a master degree and have a duration of 3 years. Scholarships according to the 4+4 model can be given to applicants, who have passed the 4th year of their master studies, and have a duration of 4 years. For the first two years you will be enrolled in the PhD programme and the Master’s programme parallel to each other. During that period your pay will consist of a combination of SU student grants and salary for job assignments. After obtaining the Master’s Degree, you will enter into a salaried PhD scholarship. Pay and conditions of employment will be in accordance with the agreement between the Ministry of Finance and AC (the Danish Confederation of Professional Associations).

As part of the PhD program the PhD student must complete an individual planned course program.
The PhD student must also achieve teaching experience during the research education. The PhD student is expected to spend a certain period with a relevant foreign research institution, normally one semester. The research unit for health economics appoints a supervisor and possibly a co-supervisor.

PhD, University of Antwerp
The Department of Accounting and Finance of the Faculty of Applied Economic Sciences of the University of Antwerp has a full-time vacancy (m/f) for a:

Doctoral student in accounting

The research position is funded by a project grant of the Research Foundation Flanders (FWO).

The ideal candidate has a strong academic background in accounting and finance, including good research and statistical skills and an excellent command of the English language. A research master degree would be an added advantage.

The applicant is expected to conduct research in the field of financial disclosure behavior in an international setting. The research will be carried out in close collaboration with Prof. Walter Aerts and Prof. Tom Van Caneghem. The candidate is expected to enroll the university's Ph.D. program and to obtain a Ph.D. at the end of the project. A short project description can be found below. We offer a four-year position (with periodic evaluation), a net monthly grant of over 1800 euro, and a stimulating working environment in a lively cosmopolitan city.

For more information, please contact Prof. Walter Aerts (University of Antwerp) at walter.aerts@ua.ac.be .

The position is open until filled with a final deadline of October 1, 2012.

Short project description

We investigate intra-industry imitation in discretionary financial disclosure and management commentary. Imitation of discretionary reporting content and related reporting choices may be conceived as a rational response to discretion and related ambiguity in order to meet explicit and implicit industry norms. This issue is crucial in the current debate on a principles-based versus rules-based approach in the reporting standard-setting process. We will address the following research questions: (1) What is the extent of intra-industry benchmarking in specific discretionary reporting choices and which imitation mechanisms drive reporting conformity, (2) What is the impact of professional intermediaries (e.g. auditors, consultants) on imitation-driven reporting, (3) Which firm-specific factors (e.g. relative performance) affect the extent of benchmarked reporting, and (4) Whether and to what extent self-serving consequences (e.g. financial analyst behavior, cost of capital) of industry-based imitation in external reporting can be observed.

PhD Research Fellowship in Economics

The PhD fellow will be part of the project “Strengthening the adaptive capacity of institutions in fisheries” funded by The Norwegian Research Council as part of the Programme “Climate Change and its impacts on Norway”(NORKLIMA).

Starting date: as soon as possible

Contract duration: 3 years

Project description

The successful candidate will work in a research team that analyzes the feedbacks between climatic, social and ecological forces with the aim to strengthen the adaptive capacity of institutions that govern marine ecosystems, focusing on the Barents Sea ecosystem. Typical issues to be studied are (i) how informal institutions, such as social norms and cultural identity, influence behavior of individual fishermen, (ii) how formal institutions, such as government regulatory agencies, respond to environmental change and its effect on resource users, (iii) how biological complexity, such as the risk of a resource collapse induced by climate change, should be reflected in management plans.

This project will be carried out in collaboration with the Fisheries Centre of the University of British Columbia, Vancouver,Canada; the Stockholm Resilience Centre, University of Stockholm, Sweden; MARICE, Reykjavik University, Iceland; Dalhousie University, Halifax, Canada, and the University of Tromsø, Norway. Thus, this project combines global insights from fisheries around the world with valuable Nordic expertise to meet challenges posed by a changing climate.

The applicant has the possibility to visit the Fisheries Centre of the University of British Columbia (www.fisheries.ubc.ca) for one semester to work with leading experts on global and regional effects of climate change on marine biodiversity and fisheries. The Centre has a unique database comprising distribution maps, as well as ecosystem and catch data for more than 1,000 species. Additional shorter stays abroad with other partners to acquire complementary knowledge are also possible.


We search for a candidate with an academic background in economics or econometrics who has a completed MSc degree (or equivalent) of excellent quality. Candidates must have strong quantitative skills and rigorous training in statistics or econometrics. Experience with STATA or other statistics software is a prerequisite. Further assets are strong analytical skills in the field of microeconomics, especially game theory, or familiarity with computational methods. Prior experience with environmental and resource economics or fisheries is an advantage, but we also welcome applicants from other economic fields. The applicant should have a keen interest to work in an interdisciplinary environment with scientists from different disciplines.

We also emphasize that we are looking for a candidate with good communication skills across different disciplines and cultural backgrounds, as well as good collaborative and organizational skills. A good command of English is required, because this is the working language at our institute.

PhD in Economics and Finance
The PhD in Economics and Finance at Università Bocconi is a 4-year full-time program designed for highly qualified and motivated students who wish to acquire first rate research skills. It started in 2010 with the merge between the PhD programs in Economics and in Finance.

The program has been organized within the two curricula of Economics and Finance (students select one curriculum when they apply). By its nature, the program is multidisciplinary and students have the option to choose from a wide range of electives. Dedicated mentorship and support are offered to students throughout their time at Bocconi.

Our first-year students acquire a broad set of theoretical and methodological skills required in both economics and finance (mathematics, statistics, econometrics, microeconomics), as well as to their curriculum (macroeconomics for Economics, asset pricing and corporate finance for Finance).

In the second year, students choose their field of specialization within their curriculum (e.g. asset pricing, accounting, banking, corporate finance, development economics, econometrics, economic history, microeconomic theory, industrial dynamics and organization, international economics, macroeconomics, political economics, and public economics). The third and fourth years are entirely dedicated to research, including attendance at regular seminars held by internationally renowned internal and external faculty.

Our PhD classes are enriched by the interaction among students from all over the world, with backgrounds not only in economics and finance, but also other disciplines such as engineering and statistics. International exchanges are promoted within the framework of the European Doctoral Group in Economics (http://www.edge-page.net/).

Faculty members are highly performing in terms of international publications and are active members of the international community. They publish in or serve on the editorial boards of leading research journals, such as American Economic Review, Econometrica, Journal of Econometrics, Journal of Economic Theory, Journal of Finance, Journal of Monetary Economics, Journal of Political Economy, Mathematical Finance, Quarterly Journal of Economics, Review of Economic Studies, and many others. Faculty members have been and currently are the recipients of prestigious competitive grants (e.g., by the European Research Council and the National Science Foundation in the United States).

The PhD program is designed to prepare and foster an academic career on the international jobmarket. Other career opportunities include central banks, governments and international organizations. In the last few years our students have been hired by prestigious schools and organizations such as: ESSEC International Business School, The Bank of England, Bank of Italy, Harvard University, London Business School, National Bank of New Zealand, Queen Mary College, Xiamen University, Toulouse School of Economics and others.

Fellowships are available for admitted students.

Applicants should hold or be completing a graduate degree or equivalent.

A B2 (CEFR) competence level of English or above is required to be admitted to the PhD program.

At the first step, up to 10 PhD fellowships (which cover four years of study) are available for the PhD in Economics and Finance. Afterwards, other positions (with or without fellowship) can be allocated according to merit to the PhD in Economics and Finance.

Applications are due by February 1st, 2013.
